[sf-perl] Meeting October 25: Byrne Reese on Movable Type, at Six Apart
qw at sf.pm.org
Mon Oct 10 19:07:45 PDT 2005
Our October meeting will be sponsored (including food ;) ) by Six Apart.
It's October 25, two weeks from tomorrow. To my pleasure, I learned that
they have hired Byrne Reese of SOAP::Lite fame, so he'll be giving the talk.
Here's what Byrne has to say on the subject:
Movable Type is not "blogging software." It is a "publishing platform."
Furthermore, it is not just a platform for plugin developers, but
application developers well. Few other plugins demonstrate that better
than Media Manager [which Byrne wrote, prior to joining Six Apart].
Tonight we will go under the hood of Movable Type, using Media Manger as
an example, to share code samples, discuss the underpinnings of Movable
Type's architecture and demonstrate how any one can use Movable Type to
build compelling, fully integrated, blogging applications.
II. Overview of MT and Media Manager
III. Introduction of the MT Platform
A. template tags
B. text filters
IV. Under the hood
So you know the drill: RSVP to me, qw at sf.pm.org, telling me how
many people you'll bring. (This enables Six Apart to order enough food.)
Here are the details of time and place:
When: 8:00 p.m. Tuesday, October 25
Where: Six Apart, 548 4th St. (between Brannan and Bryant)
The closest BART station is Powell. It's a bit of a hike, so try the 45:
